    I had the same problem with my newly purchased Teac R1 radio, battery lasted like 5 minutes and was about to return this when I cam across this post. Solution #1 fixed the problem. Just take off the battery cover unplug the battery and let it charge for 24 hours. My radio then played on battery for 7 hours.

UNPLUG THE RADIO !!!!!!!!!
Try removing the battery cover and remove and disconnect the battery.
Reconnect the battery and replace the battery cover.
Now, plug the radio into the wall electrical outlet and wait, the blue light on the radio top should start flash and will flash for about 10 minutes and then stop flashing.
Leave the radio plugged in for about 16 to 24 hours to completely charge the battery. For the first three or four times, completely drain the battery and completely recharge for 16 to 24 hours, this will condition the battery .... mine works like a dream. GR

What happened to my radio?


Did the battery get very hot? If so, then It has a short circuit and is broken. Do not use it, because some batteries can explode if discharged very quickly.

Doesn't hold a charge any more.


Even rechargeable batteries need to be replaced periodically. If it is under warranty have the place where you purchased it help you. If it is not under warranty and it has a lot of charge/recharge cycles on it then open it up and remove the battery and take it to be tested first before you purchase a replacement battery.

Resetting an eton fr-360 weather radio. it will not come on even with new batteries. how do i reset it.


I had the same problem so I sent an email to Eton's customer service, this was their response and it worked for me:
Please use the following procedure to reset it. Please remove your AAA batteries and unplug the rechargeable battery. Let the radio sit for 30 to 45 minutes, then put them back in. To play it from the AAAs press and release BATT first, then POWER. To play if from the rechargeable, first press DYN/SOL, then turn the crank for 90 seconds, then press and release POWER.

To charge the unit with an AC adapter, plug in the AC adapter, press the DYN/SOL button and make sure that it reads SOL/DYN in the lower right corner of the display. Let it charge for about 8 hours. Make sure that it still says SOL/DYN and press the POWER button. It should play for about 5 to 6 hours, depending on the volume.

DROPPED MIDLAND WEATHER RADIO - NOT WORKING NOW


I will be honest with you, I haven't had any problems with this, but I will give you my opinion on what you should do. You can try to call tech support, but I do not think they are going to replace your radio because under their one year warranty, it says that they will repair or replace, at its option without charge, your radio if it fails due to a defect in material or workmanship within One Year following the initial consumer purchase. In other words, they are probably going to feel like this was your fault and your sole responsibility for the radio not working, not the radio itself. I will give you two possible solutions that you can try, but the only solution maybe to just get a new one. My first solution is to actually open the radio by unscrewing the bottom screws (the other two bottom screws are under the black grip-pads), and checking the circuit board and other contractions inside the radio to make sure everything is still intact. I've never tried this with the weather radio, but I did try it with a digital tire gauge I had bought. The tire gauge was not coming on when it was supposed to. I opened it up and played with some of the parts in it. I'm still not finished fixing it, but I did see that it was working better than it was before. Try playing with the parts in the radio and then put the radio back together and turn it on. If this does not work, than it's likely something that cannot be replaced and you will have to get another one. They have them at Wal-Mart for $29.99. I don't know if you are running your radio just on batteries or not, but if you are, maybe you should change the batteries. I hope this works out for you and remember, this is just a suggestion.

My Grundig 300PE was a Christmas gift, 2009. One week later, it won't turn on. I've installed new batteries and it won't work on the external power source either. The "light" works, but nothing else will...


Lets find that receipt and get it fixed under warranty pronto. as it's a gift and you may not be able to get the receipt, go back to the place of purchase and plead plead plead!
Good Luck

I have the same problem, and for now an external charger is the best solution. Also try resetting 4 times. I also got a new power supply, but problem persist. Good luck!!!
